  3. Batman:

    Gotham has fallen silent. The night is no longer broken by the sounds of crime. Children are no longer waken by the sudden crack of a gunshot. There are no more cries in the darkness. No tires screech as wailing sirens chase desperate men and women through narrow streets. In a way it is a Gotham I've always dreamed of. But this is no dream. This is a perversion. This is a nightmare. It is the silence of fear. A silence only broken by the sound of marching feet. A sound that echoes around the world. Marching feet. The rhyme of dictators. Our world is ruled by iron fist of the man of steel.

  4. Milan Kundera:

    High culture is nothing but a child of that European perversion called history, the obsession we have with going forward, with considering the sequence of generations a relay race in which everyone surpasses his predecessor, only to be surpassed by his successor. Without this relay race called history there would be no European art and what characterizes it: a longing for originality, a longing for change. Robespierre, Napoleon, Beethoven, Stalin, Picasso, they're all runners in the relay race, they all belong to the same stadium.

  5. John Wayne:

    Screw ambiguity. Perversion and corruption masquerade as ambiguity. I don't trust ambiguity.
